Today I visited the ruins of the ancient Mayan city of Zama. I have always been interested in Archaeology and the Mayas have been my favorite civilization for a long time, so this trip is one I have looked forward to seemingly forever. It is a beautiful city surrounded by stone walls on three sides, and the Caribbean Sea on the fourth.
Urban Planning in Tulum was very apparent and apparently it was common for Urban Planning to be a high priority for the Mayas. One of the signs on the site specifically cited Tulum as one of the earliest known street grids in the Americas.
I can almost imagine a vibrant city here, but at the same time, it’s hard to believe. You can see my photos from the day here.
